Episode 9 – SARS-CoV-2 is Airborne! Part 1
Interview with Professor Jose Jimenez PhD about aerosol transmission of the coronavirus. We discuss the difference between an aerosol and a droplet. How the laws of Physics dictate how aerosols and droplets are propagated. How vocalisation increases transmission and the different numbers of aerosols produced by breathing, talking, shouting, singing. We touch on simple ways to protect yourself with then knowledge that SARS-CoV-2 is airborne. The sociology and politics around why the scientific evidence that shows that a coronavirus transmitted by aerosols is not widely accepted and acted upon.
